Helping fathers protect their relationship with their children

There are many fathers in Arizona. Some fathers are still in a relationship with the mother of the children. However, many others are either divorced or never married the mother of their children. Many fathers in this situation still want to have a good relationship with their children, though. It can be more difficult since they are no longer living with the children. They may also feel like they are fighting an uphill battle to see their children.

But, a child's relationship with their father is also very important, and the courts understand the importance of fathers' rights to see their children. It is no longer a foregone conclusion that the children will end up with the mother.

That being said, it does not mean that the fathers will automatically end up with the children. The majority of the time, that is not the case, but there are often options to equally split custody.

The court still needs to analyze a number of factors to determine what is in the best interest of the child. What is in the best interest of the children is based on the circumstances of the relationship and how the children were raised, while the parents were still together.

Every parenting situation is different though, and decisions regarding the children are fact specific. Nonetheless, if the father was involved with the parenting of the children, the courts would like that the children maintain a good relationship with the children.

Child custody determinations in Arizona can also be emotional experiences for the parents. This makes the decision making process even more difficult and emotions can influence their decisions. At our firm, we understand the emotional nature of the proceedings and how important children are to their fathers.
